Clutch of 4 eggs

Scrub Jays’ Nest

5 Feet from my living room window! It’s been fun watching them build the nest. One of them seems to be practicing for the eggs.

This is the third day the young Jay appeared out of the nest. He seems to be getting a few last meals from his parent and flexing his wings.
